Rover 25 1.8 GTi VVC 3d (2000/X) - Owner Review

This car really hugs the road and corners extremely well. Suspension is very hard, not so nice for passengers!

Value

3 out of 5

I bought the car at 18 months old - it was 60% of the new price. Now at 42 months old it is worth 30% of new price.

Costs

4 out of 5

Cheap servicing costs (12,000 mile interval). Parts are reasonable, but often require Rover's own e.g. exhuast.

Performance

Extremely quick! 145bhp and feels much quicker.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Very reliable and mostly easy to fix.

My car is silver and has everything I want - colour coded bumpers and mirrors, spoiler, front fogs, 16 inch alloys, tinted glass, part leather seats, leather gearstick and steering wheel, electrics all round, AC, 6 speakers! Half the price of a Golf GTi.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Nice driving position - steering wheel is height adjustable and seats have lumbar support. Rear seats have head rests and I like the delay on the interior lights!

I live in the country, so no real problems. Only thing is that my alarm goes off if I lock the car with a window open a little.
